June Currently

I am linking up with Farley for June Currently...Woot! Woot!
I am gearing up for a summer in Chicago so that is the ONLY thing on my mind. I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to partner with Chicago Public Schools and their Summerbridge program. That said, being away from home is TOUGH... to say the least! This is the most exciting time of my year though! I absolutely love coaching teachers and being vision driven, which will make up the majority of my summer.I would be crazy to not mention one important thing about Chicago, THE FOOD. I have made an internal promise to sample as many amazing restaurants as possible being that this is my last summer in Chicago. Lastly, my summer is hectic, but I have to take time to read. I love reading... duh, I taught reading. Even thought it'll be a long summer I want to prioritize reading a book, or three. I would say continuing with the Game of Thrones series, but that would be crazy ambitious. Instead, I'll set the mark at three "quick read" books.  If I have time I want to post as many Flash FREEBIES as I can. It's always better when it's free, right?


  1. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog through the Currently link-up! I love it! I may have skipped over this post and gone to your "about me" page. Your past and present jobs seem so interesting. I would love to hear more about them!

    1. Nice to "e-meet" you! Thank you for the comment on the blog design, but it's ALL the 3am Teacher.Ha! I stepped out of the classroom for a moment to try my hand at coaching teachers. I currently work for a nonprofit that supports beginning teachers placed in urban and rural communities. I spend my summers in Chicago supporting beginning teachers, which is a really cool job. Please feel free to email me questions you have!

  2. So did you make it ChiTown yet? The weather is beautiful! Curious...what is your organization? Are you TFA? That was just a guess :-) One of my former principals is TFA alum, and two of my best friends!
    Have a safe trip up here!
